Hi everyone, hope you're all well.

Our August event is really special as we celebrate 8 years of the Soul Underground.

For this party Soul Underground is going back to its roots and inviting back two of the DJs who have given us some amazing memories from past sets in days gone by at The Wharf and Juice.

Miles Eastwick is a Manchester Soul boy now residing in London.
A lover of all era quality black music, fun- loving Miles has wowed us on a number of occasions with his intelligently programmed dancefloor friendly sets having a tendency to specialise in wonderful uplifting vocal gospel cuts... we can't wait to welcome him back to Soul Underground and reward him with some great Rainbow dancefloor action :-)
This lad has great taste and we just don't see enough of him so its a great treat for us when he comes to play... can't wait!

Soul Underground has always looked a little bit further afield in an attempt to treat its discerning clients to DJ's overlooked elsewhere and this time around we are very proud to invite back a great favourite of the venue all the way from from Brussels, Mr Thierry Boulanger.
Thierry has made the journey from Europe many times in the past and always leaves us wanting more of his wonderful taste in quality all era quality soul music. Currently enjoying success with his Brussels Soul Weekender which attracts visitors from all over the UK and Europe ,we are truly made up that he has agreed to pay us another visit and showcase some more of his wonderful tuneage.

This will be a very, very special night, these lads have given us so many memorable nights over the past years and this is another opportunity to see them in action, they are also great friends so expect a happy vibe behind and in front of the decks.

In the courtyard Uber welcome Sonar kollecktiv's Movementz. They'll be giving us a sneak peak of their forthcoming release 'In from the cold' on Knee Deep Records, keep your eyes pealed for this in the Autumn. Resident Paul Henry will also be celebrating his birthday on the night.
